The Florida Division of Emergency Management is offering free COVID-19 testing at the Volusia County Fair Grounds, 3150 E. New York Ave., DeLand. Testing is available from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursdays through Tuesdays; there is no testing on Wednesdays. Testing is available until Sept. 29. The drive-up site provides both viral and antibody testing.

Viral testing uses a self-administered nasal swab test that allows you to swab your own nose while in your vehicle, supervised by trained medical professionals. Test results are expected in 2 to 5 days.  Antibody testing requires a blood draw. Test results are available in 30 minutes. Adults 18 years of age and older must present a photo ID for either test. 

Appointments for viral testing are recommended and can be made online at www.doineedacovid19test.com. Appointments are not available for antibody testing.

Testing changes effective Thursday, Oct. 1. Beginning Thursday, Oct. 1, testing will take place from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. every day inside the Hester building. While drive-up testing will no longer be available, the indoor location does allow for the site to operate seven days a week. Effective Oct. 1, only viral testing will be offered; antibody testing will no longer be available.
